OK, so I'm a total addict. I don't even know where this one is going. I mean, I really don't need three different tape measures of my own, right?

This was supposed to be a flower, but doesn't really look like one. But I really like the colors. i used a covered button (made with Amy butler scraps. I had never done covered buttons before and I found some kits that the DH had bought years ago and went to town:) I again put the retract button on the bottom, but mostly because the covered button is kinda fat...I also got so excited about putting it together that I didn't put anything at all on the bottom of the cozy. Oh well, it's not like I won't be making more:)           I did the lazy daisy stitch on the side again. just cause I think it's so much fun! My french knots are almost perfect now:) I used white ribbon and a white button because I didn't have anything closer to the colors to work with. But I think it looks good. Oh and TONS of fray check!!!!
Thanks for looking!!

You go, girl! That is an awesome design and great stitchery. (I really need to learn to do a French knot. Really.)

So, who do you know that you can give a tape measure to for Christmas? They'd make cute stocking stuffers. Even teachers can use them, if you have kids who have teachers!

Thanks for sharing! Smiley

Thanks Monkey for the compliment on the last one. I really like covered buttons now. You just have to cut a teeny tiny slit where the button will be, for the shank to go through, and sew it on that way so it doesn't wobble above the fabric. And the retract button really needs to be on the bottom for this one...

Gorgeous!

What a lovely, even blanket stitch you do!

Thanks for the tip on the shanked button, too. If I ever find any wool felt that doesn't cost an arm, I might add that kind of button! Smiley
